The generalized reaction was one of satisfaction, although Russia warned that “the devil is in the details” and Iran said that the US at any time you can abandon the pact.
The reactions to the summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un did not wait. From all corners of the planet arrived on Tuesday (12.06.2018) the congratulations for what, at first glance, seems an agreement that benefits everyone. Thus, at least, it was seen by the Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres, who described the meeting as an “important milestone” and asked the whole world to support the achievements made between the two countries.
“Implementing the agreements of today and the previous ones, in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the Security Council, will require patience and support from the global community,” said Guterres through his spokesman, Stéphane Dujarric. The Portuguese diplomat urged all parties to “seize this opportunity” and reiterated that the UN is willing to give full support to the process.
NATO, meanwhile, hailed the “historic” agreement, which implies the denuclearization of North Korea in exchange for security guarantees. “A Korean peninsula free of nuclear weapons will contribute to the security of all NATO allies and our partners of the region, as well as the security of the entire global community, “said the general secretary of the Atlantic Alliance, Jens Stoltenberg.
The devil and the details
Where the meetings were most closely watched was in the neighboring countries of North Korea. The South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, praised the “courageous decisions” of the two leaders, but warned of the “numerous difficulties” that are still ahead. One of them is to clarify what Donald Trump was referring to when he said that he would end the military exercises that the South Korean armed forces usually perform with US units deployed in the Korean peninsula.
Russia proposed to recover the format of six-party negotiations, which included both
Korea, China, Japan, Russia and the United States. The Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sergei Ryabkov, said that “we can not but welcome that there has been an important step forward”, although he added that “the devil is in the details and it is necessary to resolve the details. However, we understand that the momentum is given. “
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters he values the summit as a “first step towards a comprehensive solution to the various problems with North Korea.” Malaysia, for its part, will reopen its embassy in North Korea, while Iran warned Pyongyang to be careful, because at any moment the United States could break the agreement, referring to the departure of Washington from the nuclear agreement.
